Curtis Wayne Kemmet

June 19, 1944 — February 16, 2024

Fargo, ND

Curtis Wayne Kemmet, a proud veteran of the US Air Force, was carried with love to God on February 16, 2024, while living at Bethany in Fargo, ND. He joins these family members in everlasting life: his grandson, Kurtis Smith; his sisters, Bernice Kemmet, Luella Hins, and Eldora Schneider; and his brothers, Walter Kemmet and Ron Kemmet.

The son of Ida (Werre) Kemmet and Christopher Kemmet, he grew up in Tappen ND. He was born June 19, 1944, in Jamestown, ND, and attended Tappen High School, graduating in 1962. He enlisted into the Air Force that same year and served 20 years as a gunner first and educator later. Curt achieved the rank of Senior Master Sergeant. He was thankful to have never seen action. His tour took him to Vietnam, Korea, and many other bases. Curt received a bachelor's degree in business during his service.

Curt loved cars, restoring old trucks, helping his neighbors, visiting with other veterans, serving in soup kitchens, being a handyman, and planes - especially military planes. He enjoyed fishing trips with friends and family and loved history. He was always singing - in the car and in the choir.  He was dedicated to bible study and Sunday worship.

He is survived by his daughters, Lori Kemmet (Jeff Bailey) of Boulder, CO, Brenda (Steve) Heasley of Xenia, OH, Lisa (Roger) Smith of Columbus, OH, and son, Jeff Kemmet of Loveland, OH; his brothers Randy (Denise) Kemmet of Moorhead MN, and Bob Kemmet of Minneapolis MN; 7 grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and 25 nieces and nephews.  

 His family remembers him as smart and quick-witted, adoring his family, loving family reunions, and strong in his faith. He was ready to go home to everlasting peace, love, and life.

The family will celebrate Curt this summer.  He will rest in the Fisher Cemetery in Tappen, ND.

The family would like to thank the staff at Bethany on 42nd in Fargo for their tender and loving care for Curt. If you were part of his family, he loved you and enjoyed sharing his best memories of you with others. Your memories of Curt can be shared at
